    The Yeast Bay - Saison Blend II

    This saison blend is the Saccharomyces portion of our Farmhouse Sour Ale, available to you as a result of popular demand from the commercial brewing crowd. Thiscombination of Saccharomyces strains embodies the balanced fusion of the two foremost saison flavor/aroma characters, fruitiness and earthiness.
    Each Saccharomyces strain in this blend produces flavor compounds that serve as the yin to the other's yang, and the result is an exceptionally complex yet balanced flavor and aroma profile. One strain will serve to create an ester profile of grapefruit and orange zest, while the other will produce a mild earthiness and spiciness.
    Close your eyes while drinking a beer fermented with this blend, and you'll feel like you're laying on freshly turned earth in an old citrus grove.

  2. White Labs WLP565 Belgian Saison I Ale Yeast
    $14.95

    White Labs WLP565 Belgian Saison I Ale Yeast

    WLP565 Belgian Saison I Ale Yeast

    A classic saison strain sourced from the Wallonia region of Belgium. This strain makes a classic saison by producing flavors and aromas noted as earthy, peppery and spicy. With attenuation averaging around 70 to 75%, some malt flavor will remain present. For best fermentation results, let this strain free-rise to allow for complete attenuation and production of the subtle, traditional aroma characteristics. With high gravity saisons, it’s suggested to dry the beer with an alternate yeast (such as WLP001 California Ale Yeast®) added after 50 to 60% fermentation.

    WLP565 Belgian Saison I Yeast does contain the STA1 gene (glucoamylase), a potential indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus. Brewers yeast are natural hybrids, which make it possible for certain strains to display elements of the STA1 gene. These strains have the ability to utilize some dextrins (unfermentable sugars), resulting in higher levels of attenuation than what is considered typical.

    Recommended as an alternative to Wyeast 3724 Belgian Saison Yeast.

    Attenuation: 65.00-75.00
    Flocculation: Medium
    Alcohol Tolerance: Medium (5 - 10%)
    Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 20-24C

    White Labs WLP570 Belgian Golden Ale Yeast

    WLP570 Belgian Golden Ale Yeast

    From East Flanders, this yeast is versatile in that it can produce low to high gravity Belgian beers up to 12% ABV. A combination of fruitiness and phenolic characteristics dominate the flavor profile. Some sulfur is produced during fermentation, which will dissipate following the end of fermentation.
    WLP570 Belgian Golden Ale Yeast does contain the STA1 gene (glucoamylase), a potential indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus.

    White Labs WLP500 Monastery Ale Yeast

    WLP500 Monastery Ale Yeast

    Sourced from a Belgian monastery, this strain is ideal for Belgian quads, trippels and dubbels due to its high alcohol tolerance. It produces characteristic notes of plum and cherry with a hint of bubble gum. Lower fermentation temperatures 18-19°C result in less fruity and more earthy beers.

    Recommended as an alternative to Wyeast 1214 Belgian Ale Yeast.

    Attenuation: 75.00-80.00
    Flocculation: Medium to Low
    Alcohol Tolerance: High (10 - 15%)

    The Yeast Bay - Northeastern Abbey

    Northeastern Abbey is a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated from a beer crafted by a well-known producer of Belgian-style ales in the Northeastern United States.

    The Yeast Bay - Saison/Brettanomyces Blend

    This blend combines one of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains from the Saison Blend and two unique Brettanomyces isolates from our yeast library. The Saccharomyces strain is a strong attenuator that produces a delightful ester profile of grapefruit and orange zest and imparts a long, dry and earthy finish to the beer. The Brettanomyces strains are both good attenuators that produce some fruity esters and mild funk, and add a bright character to the beer. The resulting beer is dry with balanced ester and phenolic character.

(passionfruit, orange, guava) accompanied by distinct spicy, earthy and herbal undertones. Temperature: 75-95 ?F (24-35 ?C) || Attenuation: 76-82% Flocculation: High || Alcohol Tolerance: Hig

  9. The Yeast Bay - Wallonian Farmhouse
    $19.50

    The Yeast Bay - Wallonian Farmhouse

    Isolated from a unique farmhouse-style ale that hails from the Walloon region of Belgium, this strain of STA1+ Saccharomyces cerevisiae imparts a slight earthy funk and tart character to the beer, and is a very mild producer of slightly spicy and mildly smokey flavor compounds. We recommend controlling the dryness by adding malts or adjuncts to the mash tun that will lend some body and residual sweetness to the beer. This strain exhibits high diastatic activity. Temperature: 72-80 ?F (22-27 ?C) || Attenuation: 81 - 100% Flocculation: Medium || Attenuation: High
  10. The Yeast Bay - Wallonian Farmhouse II

    The Yeast Bay - Wallonian Farmhouse II

    This is a single strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated from the same source as our Wallonian Farmhouse strain, a well-known brewery hailing from the Walloon region of Belgium. Slightly less attenuative and exhibiting a more restrained phenolic and expressive ester profile than Wallonian Farmhouse I, this yeast exhibits a great balance of fruitiness and rustic farmhouse character. Temperature: 68-80 ?F (20-27 ?C) || Attenuation: 80%-82% Flocculation: Medium-Low || Flocculation: High
